I received this from the Sierra Master Chorale, one of our very talented groups in the foothills:
Sierra Master Chorale presents

Do you enjoy singing along to the nostalgic tunes from the 50s, 60s and 70s? Join in the fun for an afternoon of dancing and singing with Then Again, a fundraiser for the Sierra Master Chorale that will “make you feel alright” (Beatles lyric/Hard Days Night).
Then Agains amazing harmonies come alive with music we all know from the Beatles, the Everly Brothers; Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young; Simon and Garfunkel; Carole King; Joni Mitchell’ Elton John; and more.
It will be a collective karaoke as we sing songs with the band, such as “Hard Day’s Night”, “City of New Orleans”, “California Dreaming” and “Under the Boardwalk.”
“We will have a screen projecting the words for everyone to sing along, so nobody will be left out, ” says event chairperson Connie Dorland with a smile. “Everybody can sing along and if you’re like me, you’ll find out that you’ve been singing your own made up version of these songs for all these years. For me, it will be fun to learn the real versions of great old classic rock-n-roll songs.”
Then Again is comprised of three very talented local musicians. Steve Nicholson, on bass and vocals, is a member of the Sierra Master Chorale, and can usually be found in the orchestra for Sierra Stages and CATS Productions. Kathy Chastain, on vocals and occasional percussion, is also a member of Sierra Master Chorale. James May, on guitar and vocals, is a singer/songwriter who has been singing professionally for many years.
“I go see Then Again every chance I can. Whether they’re performing at Amigos in Nevada City, or at a private party,” says Mary Anne Davis, also a member of the Sierra Master Chorale. “Their musical exuberance is contagious! And the chance to sing along with them? Ill be there! The audience is invited to dress in nostalgic attire and to enjoy the music. “…And we’ll have fun, fun, fun…”
The Sing Along is at 2pm at the Center for the Arts in Grass Valley. Admission is $15 at the door.
